Burton Cartel LTD
#1
I just got a pair of Burton Cartel LTD bindings. Sick looking and ohh so comfortable. I have not been able to ride them yet because it's the end of season here. I took advantage of the year end sales! Only prob. is compared to my Ride LS and K2 V7's they seem really sloppy. I'm riding a K2 Zepplin. Anyone have experience with the Cartels?

What do you mean by sloppy? Boot is loose in them?

I mean there is a lot of flex. The boot is strapped firmly in place and it is a nice fit but I seem to be able to in effect twist or flex the binding - they are plastic right - the metal bindings do not flex at all - any action is transmitted to the board. Thus to me it seems that I would have more direct control with the stiffer binding - however this is one of Burtons better bindings and of couse Burton has a great reputation, so I am wondering what I am gaining or giving up?

It was designed to be flexy, a lot of riders actually prefer flexy bindings to ride in the park. The P1 Carbon are stiffer and the C60 are even more but they cost an arm and a leg.

That was along my line of thinking. More rigidity for the mountain and more flex for the park. These were expensive enough. I looked at the C60 but could not justify the cost. Thanks.

There are other choices beside Burton did you know? Wink

Oh I believe me I know there is other than Burton out there. I like the K2 family and others. The local (respected) shop recommended these and that was the only reason I got them. Then I realized after getting them on the board they seemed less precise than my other cheaper K2 and Ride bindings. What would you recommend?

I couldn't either, which is why I bought Ride SPi's! Stiffer than the Cartels, but can handle pretty much everything, and they retail around $200.
